CST – Computer Simulation Technology

Getting Ahead with RF Breakdown Simulation for Space Hardware


In this eSeminar we will review the RF Breakdown effects which can occur in space hardware namely multipactor discharge. Simulations with Spark3D and CST Studio Suite® will show the benefits of using a full numerical approach to tackle these problems in space applications

With this eSeminar, learn about:

  • The advantages of using full numerical approaches instead of analytical ones to determine the breakdown power level.
  • Situations in which analytical approaches are not valid
  • Practical cases in which the analytical calculation significantly underestimates the breakdown power level
